Commenting on applications within Central Bedfordshire

We can only take into account issues that are proper planning matters. Generally the main ones are as follows: amenity (impact on neighbours), design, highways, policies, and history.

Issues that normally wouldn't be taken into account: personal circumstances, whether the applicant or landowner is known / unknown, liked / disliked etc., and the right to a view over another person’s land.
